One dark night, in the deserted streets of Nice, an American car slowly drives past Victor Menda, then slowly pulls up. A come on from the mysterious blonde at the wheel leads to Victor finds himself kissing and making love to the gorgeous creature. But as soon as the embrace is over the mantis-like beauty rejects him and, under the threat of a gun, makes him leave the car. Worse, she tries and nearly manages to kill him by running over him. Cars have plates, and Victor traces the address of the monstrous nymphomaniac. To his amazement, he discovers a beautiful villa, in front of which the American car is parked, where two blonde sisters live together, both of whom look sweet and harmless. Written by Guy Bellinger

Sisters
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Toi le Venin" is Robert Hossein's masterpiece,and one of the great thrillers of the fifties.Based on a Frederic Dard novel,a writer the director often worked with (see also "le Monte-Charge" which Hossein did not direct but in which he was the lead too),the screenplay grabs you from the first pictures on a desert road by night where a beautiful blonde might be the fieriest of the criminals to the mysterious house where he finds his femme fatale ..and her sister.Then begins a cat and mouse play .One of the sisters is in a wheelchair .But is she really disabled?Which one is the criminal who tried to kill the hero on that night?

The two actresses,Marina Vlady and the late Odile Versois were sisters.

Turn off all the lights before watching.Highly suspenseful.
